Kentucky is on the road tonight for what may be the biggest regular-season game the Cats play in this season.

No. 4 Kansas may be on a bit of a slump, but they're still as good, if not better than anyone UK will face before the NCAA Tournament. A win tonight would be nice, perhaps even season-defining, but given how hard it is to win in the Phog, a loss wouldn't hurt the Cats' season either.

Either way, tonight should be a fun game, so just sit back and try to enjoy it.
